Yesterday we had the joy of spending the day walking around DC.
It’s always been one of my favorite cities. In fact when Dw closed up his law practice to attend seminary, we envisioned moving to DC after seminary. We thought the Lord’s plan would be to combine his law and seminary to serve in the political arena. Apparently the Lord had other plans.
We took in the sites and talked some about the historical monuments and what they represent. The kids were taken with it all.
As we were heading to our car, we had about a mile walk in front of us. Ruby had enjoyed the day and started her usual rowdy self of squealing with joy. The crowded streets were causing her to scream even more – all these “friends” passing by – how could she resist the delight??!!
Sadly, many aren’t sure what to make of Ruby’s squeals….but we loudly proclaim to anyone in earshot, “Oh Ruby!! Are you so excited??” Our hope is to help others realize that Ruby’s squealing is her way of showing the world her joy. Which is clearly evidenced by her expression!! Some smiled. The world needs to understand that not all joy is expressed with words!
Look at her!
And to think – some medical professionals thought she would never do anything!! Ha!
